Review: The Beatles: Rock Band
Earlier in the week, my former editor, Mike Schiller, wrote a very good review of Guitar Hero 5 that made a good many interesting comparisons between the GH release and the newest iteration of Rock Band. I thought that his observation that there was really "nothing new" about the Rock Band release was ironically the new games greatest strength.
As a result, I have written about the appeal of what is already a fairly accessible casual, party game has only grown more accessible and casual via the addition of The Beatles to the Rock Band set list. It is the age of the material that makes the game more inclusive to the generations that lived prior to the rise of the video game as a major cultural medium, making potential inroads into the Boomer set as an audience for games.
